Cris and I see a lot of movies in theaters together, and we are usually in consensus when it comes to evaluating how good the movie was. We have seen quite a few this month, however there are two that net out as my all time favorites (and cris's too). From great acting to amazing cinematography and music, these two are must-sees!
The Martian // I will see pretty much any movie that has to do with space. I find it all so insane and fascinating at the same time. From Gravity, to Interstellar, to The Martian, there have been a lot of space movies to choose from. My favorite however was The Martian with Matt Damon. This movie is about a failed mission to mars, where Matt Damon is left since his team presumed he was dead. Damon then has to figure out a clever way to sustain a lifestyle on Mars until he can make contact with planet earth. I thought this movie was much more realistic that most other space films. There was also a lot of humor which I found to be refreshing.
Sicario // Since I recently just finished the Netflix Original Series Narcos, this movie was obviously on my list to see. This thiller tells the story of an FBI agent who is enlisted to help the US Government take down the Mexican drug cartel. Although Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt do such an amazing job, the music was what really pulled me in. The sound effects and carefully angled shots made this movie what it was. I highly recommend you see this if you like a well-done suspenseful movie.
